How do you buy for the man (or woman) who has everything?
I know it can't just be me. My husband is notoriously difficult to buy for. If there is a new electronic device released, he'll walk into the house that evening playing with it. If he takes up a hobby, he'll have bought everything associated with it within 2 hours of taking it up (never to look at it again). If he needs jeans, he'll buy 3 pairs on the way home. He stopped wearing aftershave (much to my disappointment) and doesn't like cufflinks anymore. WHY!!!!
On his birthdays or Christmas I can see him looking at his pile of presents with a distinct lack of excitement. As he unwraps them, he smiles and says the right things and then pulls them in a 'special place', the place that is never to be looked at again and collects dust. So, now I tend to look at presents that I wouldn't mind inheriting when they land on that pile. Is that wrong?
Today I am wrapping a pile of disappointing presents. I really hope something hits the mark and is a winner. Do you have any problems finding your partner gifts.
I am so easy to buy for, any real piece of jewellery will always get a genuine smile.
How is your partner to buy for?
